Does https://bugzilla.redhat.com/296361 (nash mount should support
relatime) shed any light on the problem you're having? Particularly

This is not directly dependent on kernel version, but on the mount
options specified in /etc/fstab *at the time a kernel update is
I now know that relatime is actually the default now, so anyone
encountering this can remove relatime from their /etc/fstab and
rebuild the initrd for their kernel to avoid this bug (I still
think the patch should be applied for safety), and still have /
mounted using relatime.
To rebuild your initrd you can run:
/sbin/new-kernel-pkg --package kernel --mkinitrd --depmod --install 126.96.36.199-10
after removing the relatime flag from /etc/fstab. (This is
probably an overkill way of rebuilding the initrd, it may be
sufficient to run:
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-188.8.131.52-10.fc7.img 184.108.40.206-10.fc7
but I know the 1st command is what kernel rpm installs use).
